INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC SYMPOSIUM ON THE CANARY CURRENT LARGE MARINE ECOSYSTEM (CCLME)

The Canary Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME), which covers 7 north-west African countries (Cabo Verde, The Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Morocco, Mauritania, and Senegal), is one of the most productive and diverse large marine ecosystems in the world. It features a wide range of marine and coastal habitats, including wetlands, estuaries, seagrass beds, mangroves, and coral communities that are home to many endemic and migratory species.

It is within this context that the Scientific Symposium on the Large Marine Ecosystem of the Canary Current (CCLME) is taking place from 20 to 22 November 2023 in Bissau, Republic of Guinea Bissau.

The symposium aims to bring together experts from various backgrounds to share their knowledge and experience to address priority transboundary issues concerning the decline of fisheries resources, habitat degradation, associated marine biodiversity and the deterioration of water quality in the CCLME, based on scientific findings.

Is attended by MSc. Abubacarr Kujabie, our WASCAL CV alumni student from the second batch, representing National Environmental Agency, The Gambia.
MSc. Seydouba Soumah, also our WASCAL CV alumni from first batch. Prof. Dr. Arne Körtzinger, from GEOMAR, Helmholtz-Zentrum für Ozeanforschung Kiel.

Today, November 6th, is the International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict

On this International Day for Preventing the Exploitation of the Environment in War and Armed Conflict, we are reminded of the crucial need to protect our planet during times of conflict. The world is currently facing two significant conflicts, which serve as stark reminders of the impact of war on the environment.

War and armed conflicts not only result in human suffering and loss of life, but they also have severe environmental consequences. These consequences include damage to ecosystems, pollution of natural resources, and the destruction of critical infrastructure. In one of these conflicts, there have been reports of environmental damage due to military activities, including damage to water sources and industrial facilities, potentially leading to long-term ecological consequences.

Similarly, in the other conflict, the environment has also been affected as a result of military actions. The use of explosives and the destruction of infrastructure can lead to soil and water contamination, posing risks to both human health and the environment.

On this International Day, it is essential to recognize the importance of safeguarding our environment during times of conflict. Preventing the exploitation of the environment in war and armed conflict is not only a moral imperative but also crucial for the well-being of future generations. It underscores the necessity of international cooperation and agreements to protect our planet even in the midst of adversity. By addressing the environmental impact of conflicts, we can work towards a more sustainable and peaceful world for all.

Congratulations to Mr. Peter Rock Ebo ODOOM

We extend our heartfelt congratulations to Mr. Peter Rock Ebo ODOOM for his outstanding achievement in successfully defending his DRP-WACS Ph.D. dissertation on October 20th. Dr. ODOOM's research focused on the crucial topic:

"Influence of Climate Change on Hydrological Drought in the Volta River Basin."

In this research, he meticulously explored the Volta River Basin's vulnerability to hydrological drought and delved into the potential impacts of climate change on meteorological drought within the region. The utilization of the SWATplus model for simulating the basin's water balance and the evaluation of the impact of future climate on hydrological droughts were integral aspects of his work.

Mr. ODOOM's research yielded significant insights, notably the accurate climate representation by the NEX-GDDP model in comparison to CMIP6. His wavelet analysis revealed cycles with periodicities ranging from 1 to 16 years, corresponding to periods of drought and wetness. The projected streamflow exhibited a noteworthy increase in the future, aligning with projected precipitation, which indicates an enhanced risk of flooding in the Volta River Basin. This outcome poses substantial threats to agriculture, infrastructure, and human well-being.

We are proud to acknowledge the diligent guidance and support provided by Mr. ODOOM's academic mentors and supervisors:

Chair of the viva-voce:
Dr. A. AKINBOBOLA, FUTA, Nigeria

Supervisors:
Prof. P. G. OGUNTUNDE, FUTA, Nigeria
Prof. I. A BALOGUN, FUTA, Nigeria
Prof. H. PAETH, Germany
Dr. B. J. ABIODUN, South Africa

Mr. ODOOM's dedication to his research and the profound insights he has uncovered are a testament to his academic excellence and commitment to addressing critical issues related to climate change and its impact on hydrological drought. We wish him continued success in his academic and research journey.

Now, once again, congratulations, to Dr. Peter Rock Ebo ODOOM, on this remarkable accomplishment. Your dedication and contributions to the field of environmental science are truly commendable.

Experience of Daniel Tetteh Quaye during the German Federal President’s Visit to the CVAO

"As part of the activities during the Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier’s visit to the Cabo Verde Atmospheric Observatory (CVAO) to know this infrastructure and lay a foundation stone for a new laboratory building, I was privileged to be invited to make a poster presentation.

The poster focused on my thesis research within the WASCAL Master’s program in Climate Change and Marine Sciences on the investigation of seasonal patterns of atmospheric nutrient fluxes to the eastern tropical North Atlantic Ocean. It also highlighted the hands-on experiential training fostered by the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS) and the CVAO who both serve as a partnering consortium of the graduate program.

I had an exciting experience discussing my research not only with fellow researchers but also with government officials and diplomats — the later engagement I especially enjoyed as many of these individuals are involved in shaping policy. I received positive feedback on my work and was encouraged by the interactions I had. This was a prime ground for networking. It was an honor to have met both the German Federal President and the Cabo Verdean President José Maria Neves at this landmark event.

This was an enriching experience for my professional development. I am grateful to the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) through the WASCAL framework for the funding as well as TROPOS for supporting my participation."

Daniel Tetteh Quaye, a graduate of the WASCAL Master Programme on CCMS, is currently pursuing a PhD at TROPOS, where the CVAO is operated in partnership with three other institutions. During the completion of his master's degree, he utilized long-term data from the CVAO in his thesis research.
